Fresh off her performance at last weekend’s NHL All-Star Game, breakout Calgary pop singer Tate McRae is up for three awards, including artist of the year. Montreal-born singer-songwriter Allison Russell, who won a Grammy Sunday night, is also nominated in three categories, including songwriter of the year.

Aysanabee, actor and rapper Connor Price, production duo DVBBS and Canada power-pop singer-songwriter Lauren Spencer-Smith all also notched three nominations apiece.

Canada’s biggest night of music will feature performances from host Nelly Furtado, the Beaches, Cardin, this year’s Canadian Music Hall of Fame inductee Maestro Fresh Wes, country star Josh Ross, British Columbia-based Punjabi singer Karan Aujla and Talk. Tegan and Sara will also make a special appearance as they are set to receive the humanitarian award from actor Elliot Page.

Following her stint hosting the 2007 Junos, Furtado is promising a “spicy” and “sexy” broadcast.

“I’m going to bring my A-game of keeping the festivities rolling along and bringing the fun, fashion and energy,” the I’m Like a Bird hitmaker told The Canadian Press.

The 53rd annual Juno Awards air live on CBC from Halifax’s Scotiabank Centre on March 24.
